Well HIVE the time for our first competition of the season is finally here.  Our athletes have worked SO hard and are ready to take the mat and show everyone what they are made of!  We need our Parents, Family and FANS attending to try your best to sit together.  Cheer LOUD and help us keep the SOT Spirit up the entire day!  Killer Bees will not be attending this competition, as many of that team will be competing at their school UIL competition this weekend. They will join us for the next competition though.  Let's do this SOT!

This competition is fairly small.  We will take many of our teams to warmups together.  We will more than likely warm up ALL cheer teams together.  PLEASE be on time and REMAIN FLEXIBLE.  We will try to find an area in the foyer where everyone can gather together and we will send a Remind as to where we are.  Upon arrival please go to the meeting spot so if we have to hurry to warmups we will have everyone together and ready to go. 

Please keep in mind this venue has a CLEAR BAG POLICY for spectators.  Athletes will be able to bring their backpacks in with them.  They will also be allowed to enter at a designated entrance. Clear Bag Policy
To ensure guest safety and a quicker entry into the facility, the Curtis Culwell Center has
implemented a bag policy limiting the size and type allowed at all events.
While the CCC encourages guests not to bring bags if possible, the following are permissible:
• Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12"
• One-gallon clear plastic Ziploc-style bags
• Clutch bags approximately the size of a hand
• Medically necessary items 

All teams will not only be competing with their division but competing for Grand, Paid and At large The One bids and Beach Blast paid bids! 

A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER:

1) Please pack the night before. Use checklist to be sure you have everything.
2) Leave from home EARLY. You need to allow time for traffic, directions, pit stops etc. DO NOT BE LATE!
3) If something unforeseen comes up, BE SURE TO CALL and let us know where you are and what’s going on.
4) The LOUDER the crowd cheers…..the better the kids perform! It is also a part of the overall competition score. Bring your spirit and your noise makers!
5) Wear Hot pink, black or white to support our teams!
6) When entering the venue, do your best to sit together as a group
7) DO NOT leave the gym without telling Melinda.
8) DO NOT eat in uniforms. Bring a shirt to wear over them.
9) Be Dressed, with makeup and hair done WHEN YOU ARRIVE at the competition.
10) Make sure your child gets a good night sleep! No all night slumber parties or strenuous activities the night before competition. Follow up with a good breakfast the next morning. If your team competes around lunch time, make sure they eat BEFORE arriving at competition. They may not get another chance to eat until late afternoon.

NOTES FROM MELINDA:
When you arrive at the venue, immediately find the warm- up area. Ask a staff member where the warm -up area is. There should also be signs posted. Once you have found the warm up area, go inside main competition arena and find seating (preferably as a group with other SOT parents and friends). NOTE: Parents/friends are NOT allowed in warm up area. After you compete, you are free to do whatever you wish, BUT you are expected to know when to be back in warm-ups (if you double compete or are on a hip hop team) AND you are expected to be in place to watch your teammates compete and CHEER for them during their awards ceremony!

FOR THIS COMPETITION, ALL CHEERLEADERS AND DANCERS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE COMPETITION FROM BEGINNING TO END. that means from the first SOT performance of the day, till awards at the end of the day. It is MANDATORY that ALL cheerleaders watch ALL other SOT teammates compete and cheer them on as they take the floor. They can all go to the main floor behind the coach's box to watch. All cheerleaders are required to stay for ALL awards ceremonies, and must stay in full uniform until awards are over. Full uniform includes hair, make up and costume! NO t-shirts, sweat pants, etc. at awards!

Cheer Hair:  We will send pictures via Remind101 of how each team is to wear their hair.

ALL CHEER TEAMS:  One high ponytail (NO poof) hot roller curly with no whispies &  BLACK bows.  ITTY BITTY BEES:  bows should have the “tails” of the bow closest to the hair. Bows should sit up high not lay flat.

Cheer Make-up:
Please do not use any glitter on any part of the make-up. Lips should be bright pink (the color to match the uniform). Eyes should be dark gray (not sliver). They need to have black eye liner on the top of the lid and the bottom. Cheeks should have blush. We want their make-up to be seen by the judges from far away, so apply heavily! I recommend using a color stay or long lasting lipstick, so it doesn't’t come off and need to be reapplied. Those type lipsticks also tend to stay on better so they don’t get on uniforms while stunting.

Shoes:
Shoes should be all white and clean. If the laces look dirty please replace them. Please make sure that the kids wear no-show socks. We do not want to see ANY part of the sock showing.

Dance Hair:  We will send pictures of each team via Remind101.

Dance Make-up:
Same as cheer make up but heavy blush and bright RED lipstick!

 SCHEDULE: If you double compete please keep a bag in warm ups with every single thing that you need for the day so you are not running back and forth to the stands!.

NOTE***  NEVER follow a schedule posted by the cheer company.  Look at the times we have scheduled for you below and follow ours! WE WILL BE WARMING UP SEVERAL TEAMS AT THE SAME TIME.  WE ARE AWARE SOME TEAMS GO TO WARMUPS SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE THEY C0MPETE.  MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE WHAT WE HAVE POSTED BELOW.  ITS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE A PIC OF THIS AND SAVE IT TO YOUR PHONE WHERE IT IS HANDY.
